Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #130: Teddy Bear Love

Hi Friends! It's Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge time! Jessica George has given us a fab sketch to follow this week, and our sponsor is Stamp Fairy. They have the most adorable digital stamps. You really should check them out. And, if you've never used digital stamps before, they have some great freebies that you could practice on to get an idea of how it works. :)

I've got a Valentine's card this week, and I'm using the sweetest little digi stamp--Donna & Donny Love. I colored them with Copics and used Distress Ink for the blue background.

The red hearts on their chests were what popped out of the Heart Circles die cut. I glued them on, then coated them with Glossy Accents. The two glittery hearts over Donna's head are part of the digi stamp. I colored them with Copics, then covered them with several thick layers of Stickles. Donna and Donny have Glossy Accents on their noses.

The Love stamp is a dollar bin stamp from Michaels. I stamped it with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink, and colored inside the letters and heart with a red Copic. Then, I used Glossy Accents on the letters and heart, and put Burgundy Stickles in the center of the heart.

There are Stickles dots on the Heart Circle die cut and Pearl Pen dots on the Scalloped Circle.

The inside is stamped with several stamps from the Hero Arts Valentine Sayings set.

So, that's my card for today. Be sure to go to the Tuesday Morning Sketches site and take a peek at what the rest of the Design Team has to inspire you for this week's challenge. Then, link your creation up for a chance to win something fun from Stamp Fairy!

I'm entering this card into the Paper Pretties Monday Challenge--make a Valentine card (PPMC23), and the Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge--use glitter (PWC189).
